New Corbin Seat!!!

I am fortunate to live 20 minutes away from Corbin's CA factory and made an appointment for a ride in service scheduled for today. Got there before opening and was the first bike in. They already had my seat mold ready to go and after 3 trial rides, I was happy with the setup. The seat cover took 2 more hours and I was out of there in under 3 hours. They have amazing service, super knowledgeable staff and a truly custom experience. The retro cafť onsite with free coffee and other riders make the wait very pleasant. There are infinite combinations of materials, colors and designs available and everything is done in house. I can go back anytime for the seat to be further tweaked which I might do after riding on it for a couple of thousand miles. The seat immediately feels more comfortable than the stocker and I am so happy to go this route!

Rugged roads in the UK do a lot of stuff for the Africa. They do a nice one piece seat. Has anyone fitted one and could comment. I have the AT sport and am hoping the seat will also fit the Sport version.

Iíve sat on the same one piece that RR sells on a used AT sitting on a dealers floor. Itís very nice in the flesh and feels fine for the minute I was on it, but obviously no idea how comfy it would be on a daily basis. It will go straight on to the new AT AS and would look great.

I have the RR rally seat and like it. If you want a slightly more comfy one then go to motorbikeadventure, same seat and much the same price when adding VAT + delivery. Can be customised - Gel, colour, logo etc. They are an Italian company and would imagine where RR get there's from. Take a look.
